WHAT’S NEW

Pinterest is my New Best Friend


I have a great idea!  Let's share ideas about homeschooling, high school, and fun family activities!  Let me introduce you to my new "best friend" online - Pinterest.  Pinterest is a virtual pinboard. It allows you to share information and ideas in an organized way so people can easily get resources online.  It's also a great way to meet new people who share your interests.

 

I have Pinterest boards on a wide variety of things. Some of my boards are mostly serious with occasional goofiness:

Math
Science
Foreign Language
English
Social Studies
Fine Arts
Physical Education
Electives
High School Tests
Record Keeping

Some are mostly goofy with occasional seriousness:

Family and Friends
Homeschool Encouragement
Fun ideas for Birthdays
Holiday Goodies
Fun for the Littles
Family Fun
HomeScholar Friends

And, some of my boards are just wishful thinking!

You can "subscribe" to get all my updates, or just subscribe to a specific board (like Math) so you get updates on just one topic (although really, is math ALL you want to think about?) Come and grab some inspiration!

I took Pinterest a step further.... I invited my homeschooled teens to Pinterest. They set up boards with similar title headings, although they made electives all separate boards-- for my daughter: dancing, costume design, fashion design, doll fashion design and caretaking, sewing basics, video editing, stop motion animation, etc. My son has programming, game creation, animation, drafting, video editing, special effects creation.... of course they have Grammar, creative writing prompts, composition tips and resources, maths, sciences, psych/sociology, anthropology, current events....

I told them now they can prove that "browsing time" is educational, by pinning their websurfing journeys into categories they are making a virtual scrapbook. Organizing what they've found helps them find it again, helps them find others who share their interests, and helps them find new resources in interest categories.

  • Alternatives to College

    Not everyone wants to go to college! While college preparation is useful for every student whether or not they attend college, that doesn't mean your student MUST earn a four-year degree. We want our children to be independent, thriving young adults, and there are options beyond college to consider. What would you add to this list of college alternatives?

  • Logic as a High School Elective

    I have to confess, I was tempted to call this post "Logic for Dummies" but I was afraid you would know I'm not actually an intellectual. You see, I know that I could never possibly have taught logic to my logic-loving children without some help.
